Oh I DO have one to share....

Forgot about this LO - this is using the Kaisercraft "Pack Your Bags" range.
I used this range before but never used that compass looking stamp - and never realised it was actually a date kind of stamp - it has the days/months/years printed in it so you can mark your date using it.
I just thought I'd point that out seeing as you may not know - seeing as I had the stamps set for a while before I realised!!LOL.

Stupid old slow computer....

LOL - my laptop is in at the doctor's hopefully getting a persoanlity transplant so I'm on my old sloooow computer. My laptop really just has to get over itself and do it's job - which would be much easier if it just didn't overheat all the time and actually STAY ON! Get your head in the game, laptop!
Anyway, where was I? Oh - old computer - slow - not blogging to share my news til now.......
Ok - my news is..
I was lucky enough to make the Scrapbooking Memories Masters short(but really quite long)list! YAY. I am just happy to have made the list as I wasn't completely sure about my entry this year, so am just happy to get on there and not expecting to get any further.
Especially since I am in terrific company with all the names on that list. Of the 5 design team girls at Anna's Craft Cupboard - 4 of us got on there, and the other DT member is already a Master so can't enter!LOL. And I'm also on there with 3 of my Kaisercraft DT'ers as well. Wishing all the girls the very best of luck with it!

Sorry I dont' have any LO's to share - been working on stuff which I'll be able to show later - not much help right now I know............

Puzzle Sketch

The new pieces are up and here they are. And there's my take on them - using some Fancy Pants products generously supplied by Scrap Therapy, with Fancy Pants being their MAN of the month.
I think I was feeling a bit "Elsie Flannigan" when I did this LO - must've been the cloud - but I love how it turned out.

Kaiser Christmas album

A while ago we were sent a parcel of Kaisercraft Christmas products/OTP and had to make them into something. Now, I like to have my projects have a purpose - and not just another dust-collector so I was thinking what kind of album I could make with this - and then realised I had been meaning for ages to store our Christmas cards in some way (the ones we send out to people). I thought it would be a great way to firstly show how the kids ahve grown over the years - and also show how my scrapbooking had changed over the years too.
So this is my Christmas Card book!

Have used all Kaiser products except the ribbon - Christmas tabbed album , the Dash Away All papers, (and some sublime paper - the black dotty stuff) a bling word, Argentella brads, Garden Vine rub-on, wood flourish and the Kaiser number stamps

Class LO's

These are just a couple of LO's I taught in a class - one is an easy version and one is a bit more in-depth - with masking, sewing and distressing.
There's so many levels of scrapbooking in our little town - so it's kinda tricky to make LOs' to suit everyone - some people are absolutel beginners and I dont' want to scare them off, but then I still want the other girls, that are really 'seasoned' scrappers, to learn something.

This was
